Critique the article(will send).
1500words include relevant scholary sources (the more the better).
REGARDING WHAT TO DO.
Identify and list all the key arguments being made in the article. In other words
identify what it is the author is saying or claiming. There is probably a central thesis
(argument) and other arguments.
ï‚· Select a relevant and comprehensive critique framework. Such a framework is a list
of questions to be applied to your article when doing a rigorous critical review. These
critique frameworks can be found on university websites and other sources for
critically reviewing a scholarly article.
ï‚· Use on-line searches to locate suitable articles. You need to identify your topic and
do key word searches to trawl for relevant literature.
ï‚· An obvious part of the critique framework to incorporate literature is to do it in a
section of the critique framework that deals with argument. Here you can say what
the author argues and compare contrast it against what other writers claim.
ï‚· The way you critique the author’s arguments is by looking at what other authors
have said about what your author is saying. You do not critique arguments based on
your own personal view because you are not an authority in the field.
ï‚· Some teams say what the author says then just cite literature that may or may not
be relevant – the literature just seems to be incorporated for the sake of showing we found some articles. You should round-out the use of literature in examining author
arguments by indicating what the work of outside authors (literature) means in
terms of your critique of author claims. Based on the literature you have cited in
relation to an author argument, what bearing does this have for the critique of that
argument or the reading in general? For example, are the claims made by your
author, cutting edge, out dated, inappropriate, flawed, plausible, invalid, lacking in
some aspect, supported by others, rejected by others, questioned, cited by others,
acknowledged by others etc. Here again, is a basic formula for how to round-out
your critique of particular arguments: 1. Our author says such and such; 2. However
these other authors have a different view; 3. Therefore this is what we make of what
our author is saying – our authors argument is _______________.
ï‚· You should be mainly citing scholarly works not newspaper type articles.
ï‚· Do not rely on convenience research e.g. Google, using your unit textbooks etc.
ï‚· You should be citing a considerable amount of literature and multiple citations are
one way of covering many authors.
ï‚· You should be referring to author’s ideas not articles.
ï‚· Acknowledge the work of other authors so we know the difference between what
your ideas are and what belongs to others.
ï‚· When incorporating other works to examine what your author is saying compared to
what other authors are saying do not solely rely on quotes. Some teams do this and
it becomes monotonous. When referring to literature you do not have to just use
quotes. For instance, without relying on quotes, you could say something like: “Our
author is of the opinion that ________________. However, other authors – Brown
2010, Jones, 2007 and Wong et al 2012 - have a completely opposite view that
suggests _______________. The up-shot of this contrast is that our author (FOR
EXAMPLE ONLY) has probably not considered some key research findings into the
reading. Therefore, there is a limitation or problem concerning this aspect of the
ï‚· Remember the task is to critique arguments made in the article not to compare your
article with a few others.
